**Abstract:**

Several observational studies of the main belt asteroids showed a direct link between the evolution of the spin vectors and the inclination of their orbit.
In this paper it was found that the gyro-gravitation theory, which is the closest Euclid theory to the General Relativity Theory of Einstein, complies very well with these observations.
We find that the asteroid's tilt swings continuously during a full orbit. The theoretical values of the cyclic tilt variations are calculated.
